A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR HOSTS AND HHH HISTORY
Di Anna and Dan Hull are the owners of Hobby House Hill. They come from the DFW metroplex. Dan is a retired Marine, and a former IT director in Dallas. Di Anna is a recently retired homeschool mom of 5 children but that hasn't kept her from pursuing her creative passions of Stampin' Up!, scrapbooking and quilting along the way. Kristin, one of Dan and Di Anna's daughters is now working on the Hill as well. She is a culinary graduate and is a wonderful addition to the Hobby House Crew! She will be your Hostess if you are here on a weekend.
Cindy and Paul Dauer, the founders of Hobby House Hill opened HHH and began hosting in 2006. Cindy had a wonderful vision of creating a scrapbooking/quilting retreat that was like being at home, only better (no chores)! Cindy and Paul decided to step away from hosting at HHH, to enjoy the retired life. In 2018 they sold HHH to Di Anna and Dan and moved two doors down. Cindy is still working on Thursdays with us and runs our weekday retreats. She is known to frequently stop by to catch up with old friends.
Di Anna, Cindy, Kristin, Dan and Paul have all forged a wonderful friendship and working relationship. The goal throughout the owner transition has been to maintain the vision of providing a “Home away from Home” for our guests.
Great food, great women, great retreat place and fabulous owners!
I recommend everything!
The accommodations for sleeping and cropping are fantastic. Very comfortable!
I've never had a bad meal at HHH. Always something to snack on also.
A must go if you enjoy spending time with the ladies, quilting, card making, scrapbooking or whatever your hobby. And you don't lift a finger.
They treat you like family. HHH is camp for women. You get to relax, eat excellent food, take naps, watch movie, and work on your favorite hobby. We as women must take care for ourselves. HHH is the best place to recharge your batteries. Can’t wait to go back as soon as possible!

The place is amazing. The food is spectacular. It's like doing your hobby and going to a spa. They offer massages, they they have a Jacuzzi. There's a great place to Lounge in and the beds are extremely comfortable. The people that run the place are so personable and pleasant. I would wholeheartedly recommend this establishment as your go-to place for any type of group retreats.

I’ve been to a lot of retreats-as a customer and as a store owner – and this was the best ever! Most relaxing and amazing food. You have a wonderful talent for putting everyone at ease and making them feel at home.
